Survey reveals finance jobs to be moved out of Britain as a result of Brexit

A new survey has shown that round 10,000 finance jobs are expected to either be moved or created overseas, according to Reuters’ survey. Out of the 123 companies interviewed, nearly 50% said that they plan to move or create offshore jobs if the UK is denied access to Europe's single market.

In detail, the number of finance jobs that are expected to relocate were taken from 39 firms that employ at least 350,000 members of staff. Within this, 9,777 banking jobs would be affected, 311 jobs in asset management and 98 jobs in insurance.

The Importance of responsive design

Responsive design is important, imperative in fact, because the way in which people are using the internet and visiting websites has changed dramatically over the past few years, thanks to advances in technology.

Mobile and tablet use is at an all-time high. 66% of us own a smartphone, up from 39% in 2012, whilst over 30% of consumers make regular purchases on the smartphone devices.

The average Brit spends 66 hours each month browsing on their smartphone, that’s more than twio hours each day! 55% of those check their smartphone within 15 minutes of waking.
